Her Pre-Doctoral Internship was accomplished at the University of Tennessee-Memphis Clinical Psychology Internship Consortium with funding through the Veteran's Administration Medical Center in Memphis TN.

Specialty areas throughout her training included Forensic Psychology, Personality Assessment, Abnormal Psychology, Psychotherapy (children, youth, families, adults and geriatrics) and Neuropsychology.
After graduating from FSU, Dr. Zager joined the faculty at University of Tennessee-Chattanooga (UTC) as an Assistant Professor (8/81-8/83). Her major responsibilities included teaching upper level undergraduate courses and graduate students (in a terminal master's program) including Psychopathology, Personality Assessment, and Theories of Personality. She also offered her clinical services on a pro bono basis at Joe Johnson Mental Health Center throughout her tenure at UTC.
